Ramirez, Leon homer, Red Sox beat Angels 9-4 on Papi's night

The Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Angels close out their three game weekend set at Fenway Park on Sunday.

Ramirez (7-5) allowed four hits and no walks while striking out five.

Goodwin homered in the first inning and again in the seventh, the first multihomer game of the rookie's career.

Ramirez has allowed just nine runs in his last 30 innings away from home, good for a 2.70 ERA.

"I think he has a keen awareness that he could potentially keep others from flourishing with the potential thought and the question always being there - 'Well, he is around". Cameron Maybin, Kole Calhoun, Martin Maldonado, Luis Valbuena and Eric Young Jr. each put an RBI on the board in the win.

Los Angeles bounced back from Friday's series-opening 9-4 loss at Fenway for a 6-3 victory on Saturday, paced by six innings of one-run ball from starter JC Ramirez.

NOTES: Red Sox LHP David Price developed a cracked fingernail on the middle finger of his throwing hand during Saturday's loss to the Angels.

Fister went six innings, giving up three runs on seven hits with three walks and six strikeouts.

That would give LA a 2-1 lead. Farrell then took his argument to the crew chief Bill Miller.

"It started off that Abad had started and stopped before stepping off the back of the rubber", Miller said after the game.

Some of his former teammates, including Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez, catcher Jason Varitek, knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, and second baseman Dustin Pedroia, also honored Ortiz.

This was Farrell's first ejection of the 2017 season, there will surely be a few more as the season goes on.

"Time was called", Farrell maintained after the game.

"Time was called. Time was clearly called before the balk was called", Farrell said. "So that was the dispute".

Espinosa was credited with a fielder's choice and RBI after the review.

The Red Sox thanked their sports hero. In his career, Fister is 3-3 with a 2.78 ERA and 48 strikeouts against the Angels.

Yusmeiro Petit pitched two scoreless innings for his first save. Only one of the four hits the Pirates righty allowed left the infield. John Lackey (5-8) gave up just three hits and two runs - one earned - in six innings, yet still fell to 1-5 in his last seven starts. Rutledge was scheduled to be in the lineup at second base for Friday's game against the Angels but was a late scratch. "Obviously, he made the right decision".

That date came and went this went and Fister opted of his deal with the Angels after making three starts for the club's Triple-A team.

Fister, 33, was released from his minor league contract with the Angels at his request Thursday. Steven Wright, Brian Johnson and Hector Velazquez have all taken turns trying to hold that spot in the rotation, but a combination of injuries and ineffectiveness have made it hard. INF Tzu-Wei Lin was selected from Double-A Portland and INF/OF Brock Holt (vertigo) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Next up for the Boston Red Sox is a Sunday 1:35 PM start with the Red Sox sending Doug Fister out for his first start in a Red Sox uniform against Parker Bridwell of the Angels.
